Rose Creek cleanup



deemed successful

are ringing bells seeking donations for the

Tintinnabulation
all around town

Salvation Army Kettle Drive
fundraiser boosted by area
civic clubs, organizations.
By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com
Bells traditionally signal the beginning
of the Christmas holiday season.
For most shoppers, however, when they
hear bells while they enter and exit local
stores, it signals an opportunity to make a
contribution to the Salvation Army.
Members from five local civic clubs,
The Lake City Kiwanis Club, Lake City
Rotary Club, Altrusa Women's Club of
Lake City, Masons and the Knights of
Columbus are working as volunteers serv-
ing as bell-ringers for the annual Salvation
Army Kettle Drive fundraiser.
Columbia County Salvation Army Kettle
Drive chairman Ken Watson said the vol-
unteers began accepting contributions
Nov. 26 and will conclude this year's
Kettle Drive at 8 p.m. Saturday.
"We've been ongoing for almost five
weeks," Watson said. "Last year we raised
almost $28,000 and we have a goal this
year of $30,000."
The bell-ringers are collecting dona-
tions at Winn Dixie, Publix- and both
entrances of Wal-Mart.
"The proceeds stay in Columbia County
and go towards .families in need," Watson
said. "This is our major fundraiser to get
money for Columbia County."
The fundraising takes place during a
20-day period and local civic club volun-
teers spend at least 100-volunteer hours
during five time slots each day to raise the
money.
Watson said the clubs use their volun-
teer hours and have a friendly competition
to see which group can raise the most
money.
He said local clubs have been taking
part in the fundraising efforts for more
than 25 years and he's been involved with
the kettle drive for about 20 years.
"It's been a pleasure working with the
civic clubs and how much they partici-
pate," Watson said. "They're really the
ones that make this successful."
Watson said the Salvation Army is set-
ting up a Columbia County office to
address local needs, but has a temporary
office located in the downtown area. He
said officials are currently looking for a
site for a local, permanent office.

Car and tractor tires and a 55-gallon drum are among other unidentified items of trash piled on banks of Rose
Creek sink by volunteers Saturday during a cleanup project conducted by the Ichetucknee Springs Working
Group, members of the Rotary Club of Lake City and the downtown Rotary Club and members of PARKnership
from Fort White High School.

Litter screen will help prevent trash

from eventually flowing into sink


By MICHAEL MITSEFF
mmitseff@lakecityreporter.com
More than
25 volunteers
spent their
Saturday to help
clean up Rose
Creek sink cave and to build a
litter screen across the Creek to
help stop the flow of trash into
the sink that could eventually
contaminate the areas drinking
water.
The two projects were
pronounced a success by Lamar


Hires, diver and owner of Dive
Rite; Jim Stevenson, coordinator
of the Ichetucknee Springs
Working Group; and John
Wheeler, Rotary Club member.
"It was very successful, and
we had a large contingent of
cave divers who brought the
debris to the surface, which was
piled on a trailer to be taken to
the county landfill," Stevenson
said.
The cleanup project removed
a complete set of car rims and
tires, one big and two small
tractor tires, a 55- and a


20-gallon drum (empty) and
assorted bottles and beer cans
among other items.
Rose Creek begins near State
Road 100 and flows 10 miles
west to Rose Sink, which is
located at the intersection of
State Road 47 and County Road
240, where it disappears
underground into a cave and
underground river system.

Club at Fort White High School

More than $38,000 was
raised during the Muscular
Dystrophy Association's Lake
City Lock Up event that took
place Tuesday. The money
raised will go toward allowing
MDA to provide better
services in the Lake City area.
More than 450 Lake City
locals had signed up to raise
money for the MDA event and
96 volunteered to donate time
Tuesday to raise extra funds
for the organization at Texas
Roadhouse. Those volunteers
were brought to the restaurant
'by other MDA volunteers and
lunch was provided to them.
While the fundraiser has
been active for weeks, those
working to raise additional
funds Tuesday made phone
calls from their tables within
the restaurant, using cellular
phones along with Rolodexes
and address books, to people
they thought may be willing to
donate to the cause.
Each volunteer's goal was to
raise $2,800.

New ranger station coming to Olustee


A new ranger
station for the
United States
Department of
Agriculture has
been approved for
construction in
Baker County. The
current plan will
keep staff in
portables until
November 2008
while the new
station is built.


JASON MATTHEW WALKER/Lake City Reporter


Baker County facility
made possible by
Congressional bill.
By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com
OLUSTEE Congress
has passed a bill which will
allow the United States
Department of Agriculture to
build a new Osceola National
Forest ranger station in Baker
County.
The U.S. House, Tuesday,
unanimously passed The


Florida Land Conveyance Act
providing the U.S. Forest
Service with the flexibility to
utilize its resources for the
construction of a new ranger
station. The Act was originally
introduced by Rep. Ander
Crenshaw, R-Jacksonville.
District Ranger for the
Osceola National Forest Ivan
D. Green said the legislation
will allow the USDA to use
government sale proceeds
from the other real estate in
the state to build the new
ranger station.
"We're going to use the


partial moneys to fund the
building here on the Osceola
National Forest," Green said.
He said photos will be taken
of the current building and
documented because of the
building's historical contribu-
tions to the naval stores and
the building's laboratory
which was used for forest
service research.
The building was originally
built in 1959 when its east
wing was constructed. A west
wing was added in 1965.

Vann III


makes us


all proud

It was great to see Lake City native
Paul Vann III sing recently on Fox
Television's "Don't Forget the
Lyrics" game show. The show has
contestants sing along with songs
from different eras and genres and then
suddenly the music stops and the
players must finish the lyric line.
Vann worked his way through the
show and won $100,000 before the
night was through.
His parents, Paul and Jennie Vann,
and his wife, Kim, were in attendance to
see the event taped in Los Angeles in
September, but all sat quietly on the
secret until last week. His winnings
were kept quiet until the show aired last
Thursday.
Vann, who now lives in Nashville and
is a professional singer, was proud to
tell the show and the audience that he
is from Lake City. His performance is a
great testimony to community pride and
to his family who has called this area
home for several generations.
Paul Vann III did us all proud with his
performance on national television.
We're all proud of him, too.

COMMENTARY


In defense of fur coats


If People for the Ethical
Treatment of Animals
(PETA) really cared
about animals, instead of
vivisecting the celebrity
Olsen twins as it did this week
for wearing fur, it would
actually be promoting the
American fur trade. Seriously.
Full disclosure: I admit to
having and wearing a fur coat.
In some quarters such a
confession may be akin to
owning up to enjoying a
smoke in a nursery school,
but there it is. OK, actually
what I have is more of a
jacket, and it's some
15 plus-years-old now. But on
these bitter cold Chicago
days, I couldn't be happier for
the incredible warmth it
provides. Nothing else comes
close.
I sometimes think
animal-rights activists have a
vision of wild animals being
happily surrounded at the end
of life by their little Bambis as
they slip off peacefully to
animal heaven.' The reality is
that animals in the wild will,
for the most part suffer
tortuous deaths by a) being
brutally killed and eaten, or
being eaten very much alive,
by other animals or b) dying
a horrific, slow death alone
- of sickness, injury or old
age.
I recently watched a
YouTube.com video featuring
life in the wild. One little water
buffalo, still very much alive, is
being viciously chewed on at
both ends lions on one,
crocodiles on the other.
It really is a jungle out
there.
Now consider that the
American fur industry is the
most scrutinized in the world,
as it should be. The American
Veterinary Medical


OTHER


Betsy Hart
betsysblog.com
Association (AVMA) approves
of the humane raising of
animals for their fur. Member
vets inspect fur farms through
industry-certification
organizations like the Fur
Commission USA to ensure
compliance with ethical
standards of animal care. In its
2007 guidelines on euthanasia,
which actually means "good
death," the AVMA noted that
most farm-raised fur animals,
which is where most U.S.
pelts come from, "are
euthanized individually and at
the location where they are
raised." Typically, they are
painlessly gassed.
But it turns out that
whatever a fur farmer's
personal views, the market
rules. And the better an
animal is treated in terms of
its food, veterinary care, even
its cage conditions, will be
reflected in its fur quality and
its price. It's no accident that
America's fur industry
produces the most expensive
furs in the world.
It should also come as no
surprise that because of the
fur trade, fur-bearing animals
in the United States are more
numerous than at any time in
our history.
If PETA had its way and the
fur trade were abolished in
the United States, not only
would some animals such as
mink likely become an
endangered species here,


people would look even more
to foreign countries and their
cheaper furs, including the
Chinese and their growing
and unregulated fur industry,
to fill the void.
Let's face it the mink and
fox are better off in America.
By the way, look for the
nascent fallout between
environmentalists and
animal-rights activists to grow.
The average synthetic winter
jacket, which comes from
petroleum products, will last
only a couple of years and
takes three gallons of oil to
produce. It also never fully
biodegrades. In contrast, the
same fully natural and
biodegradable fur can be worn
for generations.
The issue isn't, or shouldn't
be, whether to allow animals
(outside of "companimals") to
be used by humans no matter
how well they are treated,
which is PETA's position.
The question for most
people, and rightly so, is how to
use animals in an ethical and
humane way. This goes back to
biblical times, when the writers
of Proverbs noted that "a
righteous man cares for the
needs of his animal" but
wicked men are cruel to theirs.
Yes, of course, there are
people, even in the
animal-husbandry fields, who
treat animals cruelly. That is a
terrible thing. But the way to
halt abuse and improve
conditions for animals isn't to
argue the nonsensical and
utterly impractical position of
PETA, "no use of animals." It's
to continue to press for their
right use by the only beings
who can, by definition, use
them "humanely." Humans.
* Betsy Hart hosts the "It Takes
a Parent" radio show on

COMMENTARY


Getting it


right can


take time

A popular question posed to me
has been, "Why do things show
up in the paper that happened
several weeks or a couple of
months ago? Why the large time lapse on
several big stories?"
All who pose the question have been
appreciative for the information, but just a
little curious about the timeframe.
The reason is sometimes when big stories
present themselves, getting all the
confirmation, the paperwork and the
fact-checking in line takes time. Normally,
from the time we get a news tip, or find a
trace of evidence through our own
investigative
work, only a
few days pass
before you see
it in print.
Sometimes, it's
the next day.It
just depends on
the situation. Todd Wilson'
People twilson@lakecityreportercom
always are
quick to lump newspapers in with national
television news organizations as being
reckless and rushing to judgment, but this is
not the case with our news operation. Before
stories run in print, we'make every effort to
cover both sides of the issue and give all
parties involved an opportunity to comment
We receive a lot of story tips from people in
the community. Some are valid; some aren't
But we check them all and try to run down
sources. When tips are given, the paper trail
that turns a juicy rumor into a fact-based,
printed news story often is long. Many times
we are forced to dig through public records
and many times this process requires a
written request for public documents through
the guidelines of the Florida Open Records
Law.
In Lake City and Columbia County, this is
where our headache normally begins.
Here are a few concrete examples that were
stories in print in the Lake City Reporter
recently.
A Lake City Police Department internal
investigation report that was conducted to
answer claims of racial discrimination within
the department was completed by the city on
Oct. 5. Our Florida Open Records Law
request was not answered until late
November. Once we received the report, the
story ran the next day. Earlier this year, we
waited a month for the public-record
personnel files of two police officers. The
results of an investigation into allegations of
ticket-fixing by the department and problems
surrounding parking enforcement also took
an inordinate amount of time for the city to
turn over the completed reports.
A request to the finance department of
the City of Lake City for the total amount the
city has in reserves was placed in September.
We're still waiting for an answer to the written
request.
Equal Employment Opportunity
Commission complaints filed against the
Columbia School District take time to surface
because they are filed in Miami with a federal
agency, then trickle to the local level. The
Columbia School District itself is quick to
respond to Florida Open Records Law
requests on some things, but also has utilized
the assistance of several lawyers recently who
have passed around public documents,
philosophized over their validity in a few
billable hours, then offered a judgment on
their public release.
Normally, the hotter the story, the more
reluctance there is to release the information.
Many days, it's a dog-and-pony show standoff
between the government and us.
By contrast, recently we requested
confirmed paperwork on the test scores of a
county firefighter. These were made through
the Florida Bureau of Fire Standards and
Training in Ocala. We had the public
documents we requested within two hours.
Public records are just that records
available to any citizen. Right now, the two
organizations with a corner on the red-tape
market, the slowest to respond to public
records requests, are the Lake City Police
Department and the City of Lake City's
finance department.
Other organizations and departments
locally city, county, state and school district
- are reasonably cooperative. Two things I
do pledge on behalf of this newspaper. First,
we will check out all news tips and see where


they lead us. Second, stories will have
confirmed sources and a paper trail to back up
the facts before they go to print.
We'll stay in the hunt for the elusive public
records.

CLEANUP: Generated plenty of debris


JASON MATTHEW WALKER/Lake City Reporter
More than 450 residents signed up for the Muscular Dystrophy Association Lock Up fundraiser and
96 people volunteered Tuesday at the Texas Roadhouse restaurant to give up their time to raise more
money. More than $38,000 was raised for the MDA to improve its services in Lake City.

LOCK UP: MDA event raises $38,000

of children," said Columbia
High School Principal Terry
Huddleston, in between making
phone calls before noon. "You
spend a little time, make a little
money and it goes toward
helping some people in need."
He said CHS staff and stu-
dents had donated more than
$300 to the fundraiser and he
had also received donations
from faculty members at


Eastside Elementary School.
Those volunteering their
time Tuesday were given sou-
venirs for their efforts and also
had their photos taken wear-
ing traditional black and white
striped jail fatigues, behind a
set of bars, to coincide with the
Lock Up theme.
Katie Curvel, district direc-
tor for MDA, said the organi-
zation received a very positive


reaction from the community.
"I would say the event went
very well," she said. "We're
very happy with the turnout
and I think everyone here had a
good time. We ended up reach-
ing our goal to provide better
services for our members."
This is the first time since
2003 that MDA has hosted
a Lock Up fundraiser in
Columbia County.


Continued From Page 1A
along with a number of
cave divers, volunteered their
time to help make the project a
success, said Stevenson.
Besides the cave and sink
cleanup, a litter screen/chain-
link fence, was built across
Rose Creek to capture debris
before it can flow into the sink
and contaminate the sink,
which eventually becomes the
area's drinking water.
Building the fence across
the creek was easy because it
was dry.
"Our drought has kept
the creek from flowing since
we haven't had any notable
rainfall," Stevenson said.
The chain-link fence was
built by the students from Fort
White and Rotary Club
members with the direction of
experienced fence installer
David Hall from D&D fence
company of Lake City.
"The litter screen will be


inspected periodically to keep
it from being clogged with
debris as well, once enough
rain falls to cause the creek to
flow," Stevenson said.
"Both the cleanup and the
litter screen projects have con-
tributed to the protection of
our drinking water and the
Ichetucknee Springs, which is
all the same water."
Hires said the most interest-
ing items he and the other
divers found during the cleanup
of the cave system was a jaw
from a horse, along with a few
of its teeth and four metal hoops
used to hold wooden wagon
wheels together.
"I'm not sure if this story is
true or not, but a turn-of-the-
century urban legend around
here tells about an old gentle-
man whose horse and wagon
fell into the sink," Hires said.
It seems the mystery of the
wagon and horse may be more


fact than legend after all.
"It was a good day, and I
can't say enough about the
work ethic of the Fort White
students," Wheeler said.
'They showed up on time and
didn't stop working until the
job was done."
The students also walked the
length of the creek bed from.
the litter fence to the sink pick-
ing up trash and debris, a dis-
tance of about one-quarter mile.
Rose Sink is managed by
Ichetucknee Springs State
Park, and because of the
increasing importance of a
clean supply of drinking
water, it is not open to the
public, except for occasional
educational field trips.
"The cleanup project has also
served to raise public aware-
ness about the importance of
Rose Creek and its importance
to the drinking water of the
area," Stevenson said.


STATION: Original facility built in 1959


JASON MATTHEW WALKER/Lake City Reporter
Terry Huddleston, Columbia High School principal, calls a friend and asks for a donation during the
Muscular Dystrophy Association's Lake City Lock Up event that took place Tuesday afternoon at Texas
Roadhouse. Each person was asked to try to raise at least $2,800. 'It's a lot of money, but it's going to
a good cause,' Huddleston said.


Continued From Page 1A
The U.S. Forest Service dis-
trict office has been housed in
the building since 1985 and
research facilities have always
been located in the building.
The current building is
approximately 17,000 square-
feet in size and houses a staff
of 27-32 on-site employees,
"When the forest service
builds buildings, they build
them with a 40-year-life com-
mitment," Green said. 'This
building, being an old
research lab, what we wanted
to do is have a building that
identified us as the Osceola
National Forest (ranger sta-
tion). A lot of people refer to


this (building) as the old
research site."
Green said a team of
employees and others held
meetings for close to two years
before it was determined the
new building would remain at
the current location.
"We'd like to service the
community from the existing
location," he said.
The new building will be
between 9,000 square-feet and
10,000 square-feet in size, bdilt
with environmentally-friendly
products and have a design
emphasizing quality air flow.
Parking lots at the location will
be reconfigured.


"We'll eventually have our
building here as well as our
work center," Green said.
'We'll be looking at a smaller
building. We wanted to consol-
idate down as small as we can
to fit our needs and the needs
of the, public and try to keep
everything at one location."
The current plan is to
have the staff in portables
by November 2008 while the
new ranger station is being
constructed.
The Osceola National
Forest is composed of approx-
imately 266,278 acres of forest
area and swampland in
Columbia and Baker counties.

Amish man's new miracle idea helps



home heat bills hit rock bottom

Miracle heaters being given away free with orders for real Amish fireplace mantles to launch the new invention

that slashes heat bills, but Amish craftsmen under strain of Christmas rush impose household limit of 2


Saves money: uses less energy than a coffee maker, so leave it on day and night and never be cold again

(UMS) Everyone hates high heat bills. But
we're all sick and tired of turning down the
thermostat and always being cold.
Well now, brand new HEAT SURGE mir-
,, acle heaters are actually being given away
free to the general public for the next two days
starting at precisely 8:00 a.m. today.
The only thing local readers have to do is
call the National Distribution Hotline before
the 48 hour deadline with their order for
-the handmade Amish Fireplace Mantles.
Everyone who does is instantly being awarded
S- the miracle heaters absolutely free.
This is all happening to launch the new
HEAT SURGE Roll-n-Glow Amish Fireplace
that actually rolls from room to room so you
can take the heat with you anywhere. That
way, everyone who gets them first can imme-
diately start saving on their heat bills.
f mFor the first time ever, portable Amish
fireplaces are being delivered directly to the
"Copyrighted Material doors of all those who beat the deadline.
Syndicated Content These miracle fireplaces have what's being
Available from Commercial News Providers" called the 'Fireless Flame' technology that
gives you the peaceful flicker of a real fire but
without any flames, fumes, smells, ashes or
mess. Everyone is getting them because they
require no chimney and no vent. You just plug
them in.
The Fireless Flame looks so real it fools
everybody but it has no real fire. So what's the
catch? Well, the soft spoken Amish craftsmen
who' hand make the mantles are imposing a
strict household limit of 2 during the strain of
the Christmas rush.
"We can barely keep up ever since we start-
ed giving heaters away free. Now that it's re-
ally getting cold outside, everyone's trying to
get them. Amish craftsmen are working their
,fingers to the bone to be sure everyone gets
their delivery in time for Christmas," confirms
Timothy Milton, National Shipping Director.
"These portable Roll-n-Glow Fireplaces are
the latest home decorating sensation. They
actually give you a beautifully redecorated
room while they quickly heat from wall to
wall. It's the only way to dress up every room,
stay really warm and slash your heat bills all
at the same time," says Josette Holland, Home
Makeover Expert to the rich and famous.
And here's the best part. Readers who
beat the 48-hour order deadline are getting
their imported hi-tech miracle heaters free
when encased in the real Amish built solid
wood fireplace mantles. The mantles are be-
ing handmade in the USA right in the heart
of Amish country where they are beautifully
hand-rubbed, stained and varnished.
You just can't find custom made Amish
mantles like this in the national chain stores.
That makes the solid oak mantle a real steal
for just two hundred ninety-eight dollars since
the entire cost of the miracle heater is free.
This free giveaway is the best way to finish
all of your holiday shopping, because it's one of
the year's hottest Christmas gifts. The HEAT
SURGE Roll-n-Glow Fireplace gives you all
the beauty and warmth of a built-in fireplace
but it can also save you a ton of money on heat-
ing bills.
Even people in California and Florida are
^flocking to get them so they may never have
to turn on their furnace all winter. And since
it uses less energy than a coffee maker the
potential savings are absolutely incredible.
"We are making sure no one gets left out,
but you better hurry because entire communi-
ties of Amish craftsmen are straining to keep
up with Christmas orders. For now, we have
to turn away dealers in order to let readers
of today's newspaper have two per household
just as long as they call before the deadline,"
confirms Milton.
It's a really smart decision to get two right
now because for only the next 48 hours you
get both miracle heaters free. That's like put-
ting five hundred bucks right in your pocket
and you can save even more money on your
monthly heating bills.
"Everyone's calling to get one but those
who are getting their shopping done are sur-
prising the whole family by getting two. So
when lines are busy keep trying or log onto

LAKE CITY REPORTER OUTDOORS WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 19, 2007


Find fishing success after


cold fronts roll through


By Scott Suggs
F irst, let me say
that as an angler I
understand that
bass fishing after
a cold front can
be very frustrating.
Especially if you fish in areas
with Florida-strain
largemouth bass, cold fronts
can pretty much be the
excuse you need to park the
boat and head to a deer stand
or sit in the house and watch
football.
But cold fronts are just a
fact of life for most of the
country from about October
through April. That's a long
period of time to simply give
up on bass fishing. Those fish
have to eat at some point
during this six-month stretch;
fish are going to be caught by
someone somewhere. I figure
that might as well be me. So
learning to deal with the
effects of cold fronts as it
relates to bass fishing is the
first step towards keeping my
days on the water successful
when everyone else has
packed it in for the year,
leaving you on the water with
cold air temperatures and
bluebird skies.
As the air temperature
cools from a cold front, the
surface temperature of the
water will also begin to cool.
This will force bass in
shallow water to seek holding


areas in deeper water where
the temperature will be
warmer. I use my electronics
to find brush piles in deep
water or deep-water ledges
near channel swings or
secondary points. Once I find
them I do like to use a jig or a
drop shot, something with a
vertical presentation. A
football jig tipped with a
Berkley PowerBait Chigger
Craw and dragged slowly
through these areas can be
very effective. Drop shooting
a Berkley Gulp!
Sinking Minnow can be
effective, too. Just shake the
rod tip, trying not to move
the bait too far.
Sometimes smaller baits
can be they key, too. If you
normally catch fish on a.
10-inch Berkley PowerBait
Power Worm, try a 6-inch
worm; same goes for
stick- and creature-style baits.
Being cold blooded the body
temperature of a bass is
regulated by its environment.
When the water cools, they
become lethargic and their
metabolism slows. Big meals
aren't needed, but a easy
meal one that won't
require much work to
capture or consume is
always welcome.
Don't overlook tight cover,
either. Bushes, toot balls,
dock pilings, logs and rock
can sometimes draw in large
numbers of bass. They will


huddle in these protected
areas where the water temps
are more stable. Try
pitching jigs or wacky rigged
soft plastics like a PowerBait
Fat Dover Crawler in these
areas and let them sink. It
might take some time, but
you can catch these fish.
More than anything,
fishing after a cold front
requires anglers to slow
down. The bass are going to
be moving and reacting
slowly, so your presentation
should not be fast. Bait like
Gulp! are ideal for slow
presentations because the
scent and flavor that are built
into the baits works even
better when fished slowly.
The scent clouds will fill the
area and actually draw in fish
- even lethargic ones in
search of an easy meal.
Fishing after cold fronts
isn't ideal, but don't let low
air temperatures keep you off
the water. This time of the
year can yield some very big
fish that have been gorging
on the shad that spawn in the
backs of coves. Plus, there
won't be much boat traffic.
Just change your tactics a
little and go catch some big
bass while everyone else is
sitting around the house.
* Scott Suggs is the 2007 FLW
Champion and the first angler in
professional bass fishing to win
$1 million in a single tournament.

Florida still reigns supreme

as fishing capital of world


By BOB WATTENDORF
Special to the Reporter
Florida cannot be beat as
the No. 1 place to cast a line,
pitch a lure or land a lunker.
No tall fisher's tale here -
this title has been earned,
according to a survey by the
U.S. Census Bureau.
Every five years the
Census Bureau conducts the
"National Survey of Fishing,
Hunting and Wildlife-
Associated Recreation." This
survey is the gold standard
for comparing outdoor recre-
ational activities between the
states. Once again it proves
that Florida is the top fishing
destination, according to the
2006 results.
The facts tell where
anglers -go for the best
fishing opportunities. Florida
provided 46.3 million days of
recreational fishing in 2006
versus 41.1 million days in
Texas, the second-highest
state. Of fishing days spent in
Florida, 4.8 million days were
by tourists, while Wisconsin,
the second-highest state for
tourist days, provided
3.8 million days.
In terms of nonresident
anglers, Florida is also
number one with 885,000,
versus No. 2 North
Carolina with less than half
that at 395,000.
But the story does not
end there. Overall, Florida
again ranked. first in
number of fishing partici-
pants age 16 and older with
2.77 million. Runner-up
Texas had 2.53 million
participants.
However, in 2001 Florida

See the December 26th
edition of the Lake City
Reporter for details.


had 3.10 million anglers, so
there has been a decline of
approximately 11 percent
over five years, according to
these estimates.
If you look at the decline
as a percentage of the
population, which has been
rapidly increasing, the
percent decline is a little
more dramatic. In 2001,
national rates were
16 percent, and in Florida
17 percent of the population
fished. Those rates dropped
to 13 percent nationally and
to 14 percent in the Sunshine
State in 2006.
On the positive side, the
number of fishing days
per angler has increased
nationally, with the average
angler fishing 17 days out of
the year in 2006.
Anglers in Florida spent
$4.4 billion in 2006, allowing
Florida to claim another
No. 1 spot as the place where
anglers spend the most
money. The Lone Star State
was second-best with
$4.3 billion spent on fishing.
Recreational fishing dollars
helped to support 75,068 jobs

in Florida, again making it
No. 1, with Texas trailing
behind with 58,938 jobs. This
economic trend is great news
for Florida, partially because
state and local taxes from the
sale of fishing-related goods
and services generated
$441 million for general
funds.
In spite of the national
estimates of fishing participa-
tion for all U.S. anglers (does
not include foreign anglers)
over 16 years of age decreas-
ing, actual fishing license
sales for both freshwater and
saltwater have increased in
Florida. From 2001-02, with
1,070,577 licenses sold to
2006-07 with 1,188,092,
there was an increase of
11 percent in sales of
saltwater licenses.
Freshwater license sales
increased, from 587,413 sold
in 2001-02 to 630,078 in
2006-07, showing an increase
of 7 percent.
Although not enough to
keep pace with the
population increase, it is
certainly better than
competing states.

Made From Scratch
A Memoir
M making ,the best from what you have is a hallmark
of Sandra Lee's "Semi-Homemade" style. In a
revealing new memoir, "Made From Scratch,"
she tells how she lived that idea overcoming a child-
hood of poverty and neglect and eventually capitalizing
on skills she gained as a child homemaker for her four
younger siblings. It was at this young age of 12, when
Sandra had to budget her family's monthly welfare
checks and frugally shop with their allotment of food
stamps. Through a series of challenges, Sandra painfully
discovered that we are all responsible for the choices
we make in life.
With a gritty resolve and make-do skills she learned as
a child, she became a millionaire by the time she was 25,
only to lose her fortune before the age of 30 and have to
start all over again. Sandra started Semi-Homemade and
became dedicated to the plight of the over-extended
homemaker, and has never looked back.
Lee's memoir is an uplifting story of determination and
survival describing the worst and best of a true Cinderella
life. Sometimes feisty but always sincere, "Made From
Scratch" has all of the ingredients that make up the recipe
of a courageous life and remarkable success.

Behavior patterns betray

abuser's urge to control


DEAR READERS:
Yesterday I printed the feed-
back I received regarding a
letter from "Smothered in
Michigan," a recently
divorced mother of two. Her
ex-husband had been an alco-
holic. She's now dating his
"polar opposite" who "treats
her like a queen" and is "lov-
ing, affectionate, generous
and caring."
She went on to say he stops
by her job "only a few" times a
day, and the minute she's
home he shows up at her
door. All her dinners are with
him he pays for everything
- and he doesn't leave until
her kids go to bed. He spends
every waking hour with her
and accompanies her wherev-
er she goes. She said she
knows she should feel grate-
ful, but instead feels "indebt-
ed, stalked, controlled and
burdened." Her question: "Am
I just being selfish, and can I
train myself to like being
spoiled?"
I told her she and the man
were overdue for a frank talk
about personal space, that
she's still healing from her
divorce, and he seems so smit-
ten or insecure that he's pre-
venting her from figuring out
where she ends and he
begins.
Many readers felt she
should listen to her intuition,
that the man is a potential
abuser, and the traits she list-
ed are red flags.


Abigail Van
www.dearabby.com


Today I'll share the classic
warning signs of an abuser.
Read on:
(1) PUSHES FOR
QUICK INVOLVEMENT:
Comes on strong, claiming,
"I've never felt loved like this
by anyone." An abuser press-
es for an exclusive commit-
ment almost immediately.
(2) JEALOUS: excessively
possessive; calls constantly or
visits unexpectedly; prevents
you from going to work
because "you might meet
someone"; 'checks the
mileage on your car.
(3) CONTROLLING:
Interrogates you intensely
(especially if you're late)
about whom you talked to and
where you were; keeps all the
money; insists you ask per-
mission to go anywhere or do
anything.
(4) UNREALISTIC
EXPECTATIONS: Expects
you to be the perfect mate and
meet his or her every need.
(5) ISOLATION: Tries to
cut you off from family and
friends; accuses people who
are your supporters of "caus-


ing trouble." The abuser may
deprive you of a phone or car,
or try to prevent you from
holding a job.
(6) BLAMES OTHERS
FOR PROBLEMS OR MIS-
TAKES: It's always someone
else's fault if something goes
wrong.
(7) MAKES OTHERS
RESPONSIBLE FOR HIS
OR HER FEELINGS: The
abuser says, "You make me
angry," or "You're hurting me
by not doing what I tell you."
(8) HYPERSENSITIVI-
TY: Is easily insulted, claim-
ing hurt feelings when he or.
she is really mad. Rants about
the injustice of things that are
just a part of life.
(9) CRUELTY TO
ANIMALS OR CHIL-
DREN: Kills or punishes
animals brutally. Also may
expect children to do
things that are far beyond
their ability (whips' a 3-
year-old for wetting a dia-
per) or may tease them
until they cry. Sixty-five
percent of abusers who
beat their partner will also
abuse children.
(10) "PLAYFUL" USE
OF FORCE DURING
SEX: Enjoys throwing you
down or holding you
against your will during
sex; finds the idea of rape
exciting.
